A collision with a sheep on a country road initiates a whole series of weird and unsettling experiences for Anna and Nick which ultimately leave them both incapable of being certain exactly where they are: in the real world, in their own imaginations - or in someone else's imagination.Written by

Stylish above and beyond expectation this Polish oddity has no cheap hand held wobble cam to drag it down to the level of average psychological thriller & yet, average psychological thriller it ultimately is. Talented French born Cinematographer Piotr Jaxa has a long list of shorts and documentaries on his list of achievements & at times, this one looks as if he were working for the Swiss Tourist Bureau. Piotr fills the screen with delightful eye candy views of sweeping Swiss countryside - tending to steal the show completely. Polish director Greg Zglinski is following closely the slick style his fellow countryman Roman Polanski perfected with 'The Tennant' - along with several other movies about unhinged characters. With a bizarre script by Jorg Kalt (who curiously took his own life soon after he wrote this) the viewer is taken on a mind-bending trip into spot-the-crazy or did-it-happen-or-not territory.
Problem here is with little or no relief from the mystery it becomes a tad tiresome. A lack lustre music score adds almost nothing to the mixed up goings on and only those who enjoy a good looking - but basically going nowhere movie will be left fully awake. For a select audience only, and If you think you've worked it all out, take another look and ask yourself again. Oh, some may enjoy the strange looking talking cat that comes and goes to taunt people with some murderous suggestions.
